Girly-Girl Challenge - Day 6: Who Inspires You?

Today's challenge is "Who Inspires You? Show some love to your favorite female role model by creating gorgeous nails in their honor". Here is the list of challenges:

So OF COURSE, I picked my mom!!! She's great and I would consider her one of my best friends :-) Her birthday is in the month of October and therefore her birthstone in OPAL so I wanted to try to do opal nails using a watercolor technique. Check it out:

Polishes Used:
-Konad Special Polish - White (2 coats)
-NYC - Sidewalkers
-Sally Hansen - Lacey Lilac
-Sally Hansen - Frozen Creamsicle
-Savvy - French Rose Opal Frost (1 coat)
-Out The Door TopCoat

They didn't turn out exactly as I had hoped; though for my first time trying a watercolor effect I think it was fairly successful (minus the fact that my ring finger seems to have twice as much color as the rest of my nails!) Have you girls tried this technique before?
